Char in Green Hills Receives 2018 Eagle Award

2018 ABC awards


At Lee Company, we stake our reputation on every project. We’re delighted to announce that our work on Char, an upscale steakhouse in Green Hills, has been honored with a 2018 Excellence in Construction award from the Greater Tennessee Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). Congratulations to the Lee Company pros who worked on the job!

Char received the 2018 Eagle Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors chapter.


4-Top Hospitality chose Lee Company to complete the tenant build-out of the 4,000 square-foot steakhouse and piano bar, knowing it would be a complicated project. Char is located on the first floor of Green Hills’ newest mixed-use development, a multi-story building.

Space was tight, the building was still under construction, and tenants inhabited other floors. To further complicate the project, Green Hills Mall – right across the street – was also under construction and packed with contractors, trucks, and traffic. Other obstacles included limited parking and delivery, no storage area for materials, and temporary site utilities.

Strategic logistics set the stage for success. With responsibility for plumbing, mechanical, controls, and electrical, the Lee Company teams worked together to ensure safety, limit disruptions, address challenges, and keep the project schedule on track.

As just one example, Lee Company’s state-of-the-art fabrication shop enabled us to design and fabricate more than 60 feet of grease ductwork. Prefabrication streamlined the process, saved time, and minimized safety risks on-site.

The final results? Delicious. With Lee Company innovation and expertise, Char was ready to open its doors to delighted diners, on time and on budget.

That’s incredible. We greatly appreciate this industry recognition of our dedicated professionals and their work. Thanks to our team and clients. We couldn’t do it without you!
